Swanson Wine Tours specializes in custom small group wine tasting excursions. Our specialty is introducing our clients to boutique and upscale wineries that are off the beaten track. Tour guide and host, Jack Swanson, has access to amazing wineries in both Napa and Sonoma counties, and at many you will have the opportunity to see wine production and to meet the owners. These less commercial establishments often offer their tastings at no charge and many have picturesque spots for you to picnic without throngs of tourists...another great advantage!
